Hygiene & Gum Therapy

New Minas Dental Centre wants to keep your smile healthy. We offer hygiene services and gum therapy to help our patients maintain oral health.


Hygiene Services

If you’re flossing every day, and making sure you brush your teeth at least two times a day, you’re doing a great job of maintaining the health of your smile.

But it’s still important to regularly visit New Minas Dental Centre so that we can help you maintain your overall oral health and work to prevent any potential problems. 

Our hygienists are trained to provide you with teeth cleaning to help you and your family maintain a healthy smile. If you have any questions about the hygiene treatment you are receiving, please ask our hygienists for more information.

Oral Exams

Regular oral examinations and routine cleanings are just a few of the general care services offered at our practice.

To help keep your teeth and gums healthy, we’re also happy to recommend and provide preventative hygiene services like fluoride treatments, treatments aimed at remedying gum disease, and even professional breath control treatments. 

An oral exam may also include x-rays. X-rays are recommended because they help your dentist see potential issues that may be under your gums, or not visible to the naked eye.

Non-Surgical Gum Therapy

It is possible that in spite of your best efforts you may require more aggressive gum therapy.

Like many other ailments gum disease can be quite painless due to its slow progression. 

Gum disease does not happen over night and treatment generally is spread out over time as the effectiveness of a procedure needs to be assessed before the next takes place.

Generally, your condition is re-assessed in time and joint decisions are made about your next step. 

How will I know if I require gum therapy?

After a thorough periodontal screening and examination, we may choose more aggressive therapies aimed at eliminating or reducing the amounts of bacterial poisons and plaque accumulating below the gum line.

Generally, cleaning and polishing of teeth is done only above the gum-line.

Our hygiene team will work with you to ensure that you have access to the care that best suits your needs.

They will also help you hone your home-care skills so that you can maintain the optimum level of health that you want.
